The Hindu has an interview with Shefali Cowduhri and Afshan Azad, who play Parvati and Padma Patil in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Both girls are second-generation Bangladeshis living in London, and both are film novices. Shefali has nurtured an interest acting and says:

“I was always interested in drama and even took it as a course earlier. So when this opportunity of acting in a film came my way, I was only too ready to take it.”

Afshan, though, auditioned as a lark:

“It was a total joke for me. The casting agents came to my school and my friends and I did it for fun. But I became very serious about the entire thing once I got in.”
